The church found on 1892 as the first catholic church building in Korea locates at Jungrim-dong, Jung-ku. The church building was burnt by arson attack on February 1998. Renovation was completed on September 1999.

In the morning it rained a little and cloudy. We went inside the office building where we could see the church through a big pane glass at the comfortable lounge. What a lucky day it was inspite of bad weather! We used the space freely. After sketching some we went inside the church building and did one for each. Every time we sketch despite of all bad conditions we get some valuable things which we never imagined before we begin. We enjoyed all the calm mood of the church and even the weather too. Thank you all!

Yakhyeon Catholic Church @ Seoul, Korea

Yakhyeon Catholic Church is the first western style and Gothic structure in Korean architecture history.
It was cold but they offered to use a corner of the office so we could sketch and color.
I enjoyed it very much :thumbup:

The first catholic church built in Korea, Yakhyeon Catholic Church is an early example of Gothic architecture of the 19th century.The brickwork of Yakhyeon Catholic Church is renowned for its architectural beauty. On the occasion of the 34 Worldwide SketchCrawl we sketchers met in the precincts of the church and enjoyed sketching in and out of the historied church building all day long.
Thanks all the participants for a nice day!

ALL of the pictures here are lovely. :clap:
I saw your first results on Saturday morning before I left for my town's sketchcrawl. I printed two of BH Yoo's pictures so sketchers in my town could have an idea of what Sketchcrawl is all about. Wichita sketchers liked your pictures of the church office and the brown stone complex. We also liked seeing pictures of sketchers in action (KH Lee and KW Jung). Thanks for giving us a little inspiration at the start of our crawl! Best wishes, Mary
